We've updated our April Club Supported Ride ascending to Baldy Village via Glendora Mountain Road (GMR) to Glendora Ridge Road (GRR)
beginning and ending at InCycle San Dimas.  This is an EPIC climbing ride that includes these two epic climb sectors, and there is a bonus climb sector 3 up to the Mt Baldy Ski Lifts.

The Baldy Epic 2019 remains a challenging ride but one that all of the riders who started last year finished with an individual sense of victory. From InCycle we ride along the northern edge of Bonelli Park and it’s beautiful lake warming up our legs for the adventure ahead. Leaving the park we head west and north to the first SAG stop at mile 11. It sits at the start of Glendora Mountain Road (GMR) and marks the beginning of our morning of climbing! Eight miles and 2,565 vertical feet later we reach GMR Summit to look out over the amazing view.  We then head east along the most beautiful cycling road in Southern California the ribbon among giants that is Glendora Ridge Road (GRR) during this entire ascent you enjoy the 12,000’ peaks that should still have snow tops.  We arrive at Mt. Baldy Village for refreshments and relaxation (SAG 2). Those who want “extra credit” will head up Mt. Baldy Road, facing the famous switch backs, some at 12% that complete the 10-mile round trip to the Ski Lifts adding an additional 2,187 feet to their climbing stats! The rest of us will head down enjoying the rewarding FAST descent along Mt Baldy Road and stopping along Base Line road for SAG stop 3 to fill our water bottles and crunch a nutrition bar before a well-deserved lunch back at InCycle.
